Even though I am tired, today was a better day. I actually spent yesterday reading books under my SAD light, and today my Best Gal-Pal came over at a moment’s notice to help me get things squared away. Many boxes were unpacked, laundry was done, floors were mopped, etc. I can actually move around in my apartment. A few more things need to be done, but they are things that can be done quickly in the morning. Then we went over to my favorite Mexican place for dinner. I also gave her a pin I had intended to give her last Christmas, and a book she found while putting books away about a Cat’s Christmas. This was a book my sister had given me years ago, and which I wasn’t particularly enamored of, not being a cat person, but I knew that her mother the Crazy Cat Lady™, would enjoy it. Be it known, however, that I sent her home when I did so that I could get a little rest. I definitely felt I was keeping up with the Joneses, here. Even though she was doing most of the work. And I would like to thank another friend for reminding me I have other friends than The Boyo, and all I have to do is call on them.
There is a mystery, however. Why is it that the stuff that all fit in this space before doesn’t fit here now? I used to be able to get all my books on my shelves, now I have two boxes of spill-over. Well, they can stay boxed up. And perhaps some of them will go to Friends of the Library or something. Other things also need to leave. By the looks of the “free pile” downstairs, other folks are also getting rid of stuff, too. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so they say.
So, I’m going to go watch some TV now, and rest a bit. Eat some chocolate, too. That should help. See you on the flip-flop, as the trucker’s used to say on the CB radio.
